Peeking behind the curtain of full-time blogging

While the founder of online dating site Plentyoffish may be working 10 hours a week and making $10 million a year, most of us who are making a near-full time living doing web work hardly ever sleep.

My work day is a little unpredictable since I spend about 2/3rds of my time doing blog-related work and 1/3rd doing radio and audio production gigs. But Ryan and Ashley over at CyberNet seem to have honed their blogging workday down to a science. An exhausting science.

If you've ever wondered what it takes to produce a daily software news and tips web site that generates enough revenue to (barely) live on, their post makes for excellent reading. It also might serve as a cautionary tale for anyone thinking of quitting their day job to start blogging full time. While you can certainly make a living this way, don't count on it being any more relaxing than what you're doing now.

Great site -- keep it up and I check it everyday. I'm looking at a Sony and can't wait to see the reviews on the new Olympus.
